Just back from taking the family (table for six) to the Elm Farm. Lovely old building and duck pond round the back, pleasant dining room, though it did have an unfortunate open plan design resulting in a clear view of Sky Sports and drinkers at the bar.
They have a separate vegan menu, though disappointingly this was not on the website or copied into the menu on the tables. So you need to call and they can email it to you and they request pre-bookings, a shame as several of my party would like to have tried the choices on that menu rather than the regular veggie options on the main menu! No matter the vegan crispy garlic mushroom was the best mushroom I have ever eaten. Do make an effort to ask for it. Hopefully they will make vegan options a regular part of the menu going forward.
Service was good, nice chap showed us straight to our table and took our drinks orders there. Bar prices were very competitive and had good real ale options.
All in all we were impressed, there are areas for improvement as highlighted above, but we will be happy to go back
